Hi there. My name is Iona. Welcome to my site. I would like to talk to you about precious metals and gems. These components are key when making a perfect piece of jewelry. I want to cover natural and lab created stones used in traditional and modern jewelry settings. I will talk about the mining, production and shaping processes used throughout the jewelry making process. I will also share my knowledge about precious metals used to create jewelry links, chains, posts and other components. I hope you will visit my site often to learn all you can about this exciting subject.
